Cinnamon Farming Tips in India - Cinnamon Benefits

Cinnamon has over 250 plant species, with Ceylon cinnamon being preferred due to its lower coumarin content. It's the healthiest choice for regular consumption compared to cassia.
Cinnamon trees prefer warm, humid areas (70-90°F); if it's not warm outside, grow them indoors where it's warm and damp. They do best in sandy soil with a pH of 4.5-6.5.
To plant cinnamon, clear the area and dig pits measuring 50x50x50 cm, spaced 3 meters apart. Fill pits with compost and topsoil. Plant in June-July for optimal growth during the monsoon.
For young cinnamon, apply 20g N, 18g P2O5, 25g K2O per seedling yearly. Increase to 200g N, 180g P2O5, 200g K2O for 10+ year plants, split equally in May-June and September-October.
Cinnamon has many uses in the garden. It can act as a natural pesticide, keep away bothersome insects, and help plant cuttings grow roots faster.
Farmers cut cinnamon branches at an angle for harvesting, promoting regrowth. After soaking branches and moistening, peelers remove outer bark, discarding young twigs.
